The Provost’s Committee for Staff once again offers three $350 scholarships to UNM staff who participate in the Tuition Remission Program for the fall 2013 semester. The money will help cover the cost of academic books, course fees and supplies.

To be eligible for the scholarships applicants must:

• be enrolled in courses toward a degree, certificate completion or professional development
• have passed the UNM employment probationary period
• be at least a .50 FTE UNM employee
• have a “meet expectations” or better on the most recent performance review (please do not send us your performance review)

To apply for the scholarship, go to Provost Committee for Staff and fill out the form.  Only forms filled out completely will be accepted. Your personal statement should be brief but explain in detail why you are applying. Remember, your personal statement is what the committee will use as a primary determining factor for who receives the scholarship.

The deadline to apply is Friday, Aug. 9.  Scholarship recipients will be notified during the week of Aug. 26.  For more information, contact Dorene DiNaro at (505) 277-5299 or email,
